The Histology course aims to:

  • Provide students with an understanding of the microscopic structure of cells and tissues, with emphasis in the correlation between structure and function.
  • Provide a practical experience in the examination of the microscopic anatomy and ultrastructure of cells and tissues to support other Part IA courses, particularly Homeostasis, Functional Architecture of the Body, Veterinary Anatomy and Physiology, and Cell Biology.
  • Provide the basis of understanding of normal tissue structure needed to prepare for certain Part IB courses, such as Biology of Disease, Human Reproduction, and Veterinary Reproductive Biology.
